Warrant Records – What You Need to Know

Warrant Records in Barnwell County, South Carolina are public information. In fact, they are an important part of the American People’s privacy right. Warrant records have been recorded in a court house since 1761. However, until recently they were stored off-site at the county seat.

This is a major problem for two reasons. First, the storage of these records was an unnecessary cost to taxpayers. They are not a popular topic in general elections, and especially during an election when a candidate wants to make the issues of the race come up on the campaign trail. Second, it is against the law for the candidates to try to sway the outcome of any election. Under South Carolina State Law, there is only one lawful and public record of any person that can be viewed by any of the candidates running for any office. These records are referred to as the “Warrant Records”.

These records contain all information relating to any criminal proceedings that have been filed against an individual. It will include charges, dates, offenses, pleas entered, judgments and other relevant details. This record is considered to be public record. However, the penalties for violations are often quite harsh. There is an administrative fee that is charged to the person who requests the record.

You are only required to meet the minimal requirements to access the records. For starters, you must state the person’s identity. Next, you must provide proof of identity. If you do not supply this proof, you may still be able to obtain the records but you will not be able to obtain them for free. If you are requesting the records for a legal purpose, you will not be permitted to access the records without the proper authorization.

If you have reason to believe that a person has been involved in criminal activity, you may wish to search for their warrant. To do this, you must either go to the courthouse or make use of one of the many online websites that provide this service. Once you find the name of the person whose warrant you want, you can visit their courthouse to apply for the arrest warrant. However, it is important to remember that warrants can be suspended by court order at any time.

The next time a person you know applies for a job, ask to see their warrant. If they are unable to produce one, do not hire them. If you are hiring a person on a permanent basis, consider asking the potential employer to supply you with the birth certificate of the person in question. Doing so can help to confirm the warrant and provide you with peace of mind.
